mexico governor gary johnson flanking the president and mr. romney despite the best efforts of his attorneys. the libertarian candidate is that third man. he has now filed an anti-trust lawsuit saying it's a conspiracy he's not invited to the debates. gary johnson joins me now. good day to you, governor. nice to see you again. >> hey. thank you for having me on, alex. >> well, before we talk about this lawsuit i want to put out the numbers here. among likely voters nationally speaking when you're the mix with president obama and mitt romney you get 6% of the vote. that is the best you have polled nationally. but the bar is set by the presidential election commission. it stands at 15%. so do you expect to get there at any point? >> well, let me state the obvious here, alex. do you hear my name six times for every time you hear obama or romney's name 100 times? >> no. >> you hear my name one time for every 5,000 times you hear these guys. if i were just being given that six-time mention for every 100 times these guys were mentioned, you know what? i wouldn't be at 6, i'd be at 11, 18
in the polls after the paul ryan pick and the cotiasnt t romney campaign has stumbled repeatedly. yet mr. romney, who is losing by five or more points in iowa, colorado, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, florida and virginia, sees blue skies ahead. askehow he intended to turn his campaign ound, mr. romney esneturnaround.s," ,t and romney surrogates were out over the weekend blaming the liberal media for the campaign's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald reagan and george w. bush any less unfairly, and both men managed not onlyo win the presencyutge re-elected. mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforcedrrors and less on the fourth estate's political bias. ifhining about the liberal media was a winning strategy for republicans, newtingrich wou be t mi" well, and newt gingrich is a great example -- i don't mean to go back there -- a great example of the problem we're talking about here. because -- >> no. >> -- no, instead of stepping forward and separating himself from this candidate, he somehow, becausof his party -- at distraction.. >> it is. >> i'm talking about the p
. the "new york times" reports that mr. romney's team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he has memorized and has been practicing since august. zingers? mr. romney doesn't need zingers. he needs new ideas. he needs a new campaign. truth be told, he needs a new candidate. after all, the guy he's been debating all along has been himself on health care. >> i'm not getting rid of all of health care reform. of course, there are a number of things that i like in health care reform. >> well, of course. i'm going to repeal obama care. i've said that on the campaign trail. i think every single day obama care must be repealed in its entirety. >> he was for it before he was against it. and that auto bailout -- >> you said, quote, if general motors, ford, and chrysler gets the bailouts that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the automotive industry good-bye. >> that's exactly right. if you write a check, they are going to go out of business. >> my own view was that they needed to go through bankruptcy before gov
problems like this. this may come from the way mr. romney was beaten in 2008. it may have left his campaign determined that he not get stuck with the flip flopper label again. even though they leave the ads with the lies in them up and sometimes mrroey goes on tv invents a brand new policy position he's never had before. after he does that, his staff follows behind him and quietly releasing statements taking back his quotes. when m romney was asked in an rvlaeeoue his immigration advisers. he said he could not confirm whether kris kobch was part of his team. and they yes, he's a romney campaign adviser. so he tells an interview he' never met with him but his campaign says what he said was not true. sahiapd m when mr. romney came out with a whole new policy position on abortion rights. >> i'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape anincest in the health of the life of the mother. >> he says he believes abortion should be allowed to protect a woman's health. afterwards the campaign sa th's not whahe bieve he doesn't actually support the legal right to have an abortion if you ne

romney has on his hands. in an op-ed, rove says, quote, mr. romney must call out the president. that is not so easy. mr. romney can't call mr. obama a liar. that's too harsh a word that would backfire. mr. romney must instead set the record straight in a presidential tone firm, respectful, but not deferential. joining me to talk about it from washington, richard goodstein, a democratic strategist who helped get al gore ready for the debates in 2000. on the phone from nebraska, brett o'donnell who is debate coach for mitt romney for part of the republican primary season. good afternoon to both of you gentlemen. >> good to be with you. >> let me start with you. tell me about the balance that romney has to strike, calling out, calling out president obama without appearing to be unfair or perhaps even nasty. >> well, i think it's all a matter of tone and language. and for governor romney, i would describe it as being respectfully but passionately aggressive. so in the way he refers to the president, referring to him as mr. president, with all due respect, but he also can't let that
what you personally pay for them >> steve: that's right. they are free. one of mr. romney's polsters said don't believe. runn away in florida and way away in ohio for mr. obama, and we saw by the graphic, larry . mr. obama has more leaning his way than mr. romney. according to the internal romney polls, they are within the margin of error in florida and ohio. >> yes, essentially it depends on your model, steve and depends on how you project the likely voterss electorate in november. and so if you define the electtorate being lower minority you will come up with a higher romney score and higher minority it is better for obama. there is a lot of ways to play with the numbers. but steve, i want to caution your viewers. don't pick or choose among polls and don't just pick the ones you like . take averageses. and remember the election is 47 days away. every day in october is worth six in september. >> and next week is going to start the important week of mitt romney's quest for president and that would be the debates. first time people have seen mr. romney and obama interacing for 90 seco
. >> only one romney can show up on that stage tomorrow night. and i bet president obama will make mr. romney choose which one. joining me now is democratic strategist tadd devine, senior adviser for kerry and gore campaigns and retired captain wes moore, he's the author of the book "the other wes moore." thank you for being here. >> thanks. >> tad, let me start with you. for the debate, isn't romney caught between what his base expects and what independents want to hear? >> absolutely. i mean, i think it's going to be difficult for governor romney to square his positions on so many issues, you know, and make an appeal to the independent swing voters who they're looking to right now, particularly in the battleground states, and keep it consistent with the things he said in the primary. let's face it. the guy won the republican nomination by going to the right of a right-wing slate of candidates. some of the farthest right candidates in history. so, he's going to have a really hard time if he tries to square those things. i think romney will tell him whatever his pulse tells him to do
, the polls show them losing ohio, but their internal romney polls show mr. romney specially tied in ohio. at least ty show romney inside the margin of error in ohio. but again, they are not releasinthis magicalnternal pollindata. they are saying that's what it says. kind of like the summary of mitt romney's tax returns. if it's true they have internal polling data doing great in ohio, just in the interest of their donors, shouldn't they release those numbers? this isn't a magic thing. i aypothetical thing. in a real poll, which we can see the data for, we can see not only that in ohio, president obama is up by eight, we c see why president obama is up by eight in ohio. that "washington post" poll out today has other data in it including the fact that 36% of all ohio voters say they have been contacted by the obama campaign. that contacted by the campaign number is seven points lower in terms of the romney caaign. the obama campaign is doing it better. they are tking to more voters in ohio. 'sindien the hill today reporting that it's not just ohio. the obama campaign has double the number
. and newt gingrich will join us, and wednesday night, mrs. romney will be here, you don't want to miss that. go to greta wire.com. good night from washington. on. good luck. >> the rirl factor is on. tonight. >> you are asking the american people to hire you as president of the united states think would like to hear some specifics. >> mitt romney dodges questions about what deductions and exemptions he would outlaw. why is the governor doing that he? he wool tell you. >> i don't think -- we will tell. >> you i don't think anyone is going to be confused as to the ideological belief of most of the people who appear on fox. >> i think that's grossly unfair. bret baier, is he an idealogue? >> i don't know bret baier. >> bill: you don't know. >> bernie goldberg itching to weigh in on the koppel o'reilly shootout. he will be here. >> do you think obama made the right choice by choosing paul ryan as his vice president? >> yeah. >> do you think he picked paul ryan because is he african-american or because he is qualified? >> it could be a little bit of both. >> at howard stern crew interviews some
, a vietnam war veteran, spoke with president obama today in virginia beach. and he went right at mr. romney on foreign policy and the wars. and he is -- he's right there when he says that we don't know what mr. rney would d if he beme president. ryaiecynd guely that he supports what president obama is doing in afghanistan in terms of there being a timeline for leaving but he has also said he was against a timeline for leaving in the past. so really who knows? he's not even trying. the closest we've gotten tony competing cogent republican posionhears pbl wh weot from senator john mccain at the republican convention when he said that the afghanistan war just shouldn't end. he also thinks that the iraq war shouldn't have ended. so i'm not sure that it's a politically viable position even if it is an iernally cogent one from the senator. fois's mi appantlyust t going to happen. not unless he starts it now. 40 days out, mitt romney did get as close as he gets to talking about the issue to in that he spoke before a group of veterans and talked about a concern about veterans. even ihe didn't say w
're told. mr. romney getting much more raucous response from the crowd. rhetoric amped up. much more aggressive at president obama. essentially sort of a preview of what will be his closing argument in the last 40 days. here is a sampling. >> his plan for america, did you hear it at his convention? did you hear all the new ideas? >> no. >> yeah, there weren't any. there weren't any. it's the status quo. it's what he has been saying for the past four years. his campaign slogan is forward. forward with the same ideas, the same approaches he has had for the last four years. nothing is going to change. >> and mr. romney has shown a little bit more of a comfort zone as he has amped up his rhetoric. basically the shorthand is we can't afford another four years like the last four years and a choice in mr. romney's view between what he calls the again he den is i society as put forth by the obama agenda or his own self-sufficiency and individuality liberty and freedom. they recognize it's a steep uphill climb. is he running from behind and realizes he has a lot of catching up to do. >> carl
has done to gem themselves to this point, whether it's mr. romney's tax returns or lack there of or getting rich by laying off fact workers or that videotape that said half the country is lady bums and he doesn't care about them? in this reincarnation, thurston is mean. whaef it is that has done that is just killing him in the polls,every state. if the romney campaign does nothing else, they must, must, must make sure that nobody anywhere near mitt romney does that rich guy can't relate to people like me thing again. here's the romney campaign last night. >> both mitt and i have summer places up in new hampshire on lake winnipesaukee. a few summers ago was taking my chin and grandchildren to the town in the boat for ice cream. i got to the doing, looked around, there was no place to dock, we pulled over and all jumped out and ran up the dock and i realized there was nobody left in the boat to help me tie up or anything, they left me at to sea. i pulled up and i said who is going to tie up the boat? i looked up and there is mitt romney. he tied up the boat and rescued me.
romney meet in denver for the first of three debates. the stakes are sky high, especially for mr. romney. running mate paul ryan made the case for a mitt romney presidency today in the toss-up state of new hampshire. >> we have got to stop spending money we don't have. >> reporter: vice president joe biden campaigned in battled ground florida, where he argued that the obama administration inherited trillion-dollar deficits from the bush administration. >> they put two wars on a credit card, not paying a penny, not paying a penny. >> reid: meanwhile be president obama and mitt romney were hunkered down today cramming for next week's debate showdown. both sides are working hard to lower expect aches by praising their opponents. a romney adviser says the president has the advantage as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. the obama campaign says romney has the agent having debated about two dozen times during the republican primary campaign. >> both of these individuals are had ample experience debating but governor romney has had more practice recently and pra
'brien, in 1994 against kennedy and of course, in these primaries. >> mr. romney, the kennedys are not in public service to make money. we have paid too high a price in our commitment to the public service. >> senator kennedy, your question for mr. romney. >> mr. romney -- >> i'm sorry. was it my turn to respond. >> i was going to end it there. >> my suggestion about my comments in utah. let me complete it and you can ask me. >> do you have a problem with allowing someone to finish speaking and i suggest if you want to become president of the united states, you have to let both people speak. >> romney's worst moment was this one. it was a year ago with rick perry. >> rick, again, i'm speaking. i'm speaking. i'm speaking. you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds and you get 30 seconds to respond. >> obama has done his best to test him on this. both men have been tripped up by looking patronizing to women. aggressive attacks made her less likely to romney and helped turn the race in his favor. the last week of their fight centered on whether romney had taken a se
with mr. netanyahu. >> an interesting time to be at the united nations. >>> mitt romney is on the national stage today. he's talking foreign policy at the clinton global initiative. he says foreign aid must be tied to american values. >> to foster work and enter prize price in the middle east and other places, i'll put in place prosperity pacts. it will identify barriers to sbre entrepreneurship in developing nations. they'll receive u.s. assistance packages focusing on developing the institutions of liberty. >> we saw a lighter side of mr. romney. he opened with a joke after former president bill clinton, who backs barack obama, introduced him. >> it's an honor to be here this morning. i appreciate your kind words and that introduction is very touching. if there's one thing we have learned in this election season, by the way, it's that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. [ applause ] >> and mr. romney used part of his speech to push a theme of his campaign, reiterating he would never apologize for america. >>> from politicians to philanthropists, the clinton global i
suspect in the next five weeks, mr. corbett, mr. romney, mr. turzei, mr. metcalfe and their friends will attempt to create confusion and chaos now that we beat this back. we're going to be just as vigorous now as we have been. your prior guest on the prior segment talked about anger. let me tell you something, chris, there's a lot of angry voters in pennsylvania. mitt romney and todd corbett for this chicanery. they're going to have a conversation with them at the polls on november the 6th. >> let me ask you, kathy, why did this creep up on so many people? i have been making some noise about it, but this is like a multistate thing, something like 20 or 30 states involved in this, all basically pushed by the republicans, all pushed to stamping down on the chance of minority people and older people to vote. clearly partisan and ethnic in nature. here we are, i may be the only person on national television yelling about this thing, but as bill clinton said beautifully it's blatant and yet nobody has been raising hell about it. >> that's right. we're in the nonprofit sector and we've be

on the obama record. certainly that rhetoric from mr. romney fits with that in recent weeks they said really a choice. dependency society based on the obama agenda of bigger government and bigger government intrusion into the lives of individual entrepreneural spirit of the american people versus romney view is less government, less regulation, less intrusion and more personal responsibility and opportunities of prosperity versus stagnation. there is a point on which you could expect the obama campaign and the president to pick at mr. romney tomorrow if it doesn't come up in a question at all. now the infamous rashes about the 47% who don't pay income taxes in the u.s. and that surreptitiously obtained video from several weeks back at a florida fund-raiser. the 47% is sure to come up. when he arrived last night at denver mr. romney did an interview with local affiliate, local fox station as a matter of fact and they asked him about it. here is how mr. romney intends to sort of deal with that issue of the 47%. >> they want to know is, will he get jobs for the american people and get rising in

,000 a year and many of the nation's elderly. mr. romney knows them as "personal responsibility shirking unconvincables." you may know them as "the greatest generation" and/or "that that." (laughter) of course, that says nothing about the real parasites, welfare queens. public assistance is clearly a path to dependency and i would like to see evidence otherwise. oh, you have some evidence, mitt romney's mom? something about mitt romney's dad? >> you know we've only owned our home for the last four years. he was a refugee from mexico. he was on relief, welfare relief for the first years of his life. but this great country gave him opportunities. >> jon: oh. my. god.

for serious answers and accounting for what's happened in libya the last couple of days. mr. romney has been sparring with rob portman the senator from ohio with mock debates. he will spend literally the next four days off the campaign trail heading preparing for it he will head to denver on monday. debate preps in boston. more closed door rehearsals leading up to wednesday. knows this is a big opportunity for him to regain momentum having slid in the polls for several weeks now. he talked a little bit on campaign plane as he was on his way back from philadelphia to boston where he will spend the weekend doing more research. watch. >> they will make the decision on what they believe is the best interest of the country and their own family. i expect to be able to describe that in a way people will understand. and if they do, i will get elected. romney was referring to the first opportunity to stand face to face with president obama and call him on what mr. romney has said has been a mischaracterization and deception of the the same holds on the other side of this. three presidential debates a

iran. and here's what mr. romney said regarding that call. >> i do not believe that in the final analysis we will have to use military action. i certainly hope we don't have to. i can't -- i can't take that option off the table. >> seems like a little softer stance there from mitt romney coming out now, too. no talk of red lines. so what's going on overall? >> well, clearly the president's policy is the one that everyone is coalescing around. even mitt romney finds it hard to disagree with a notion that we should have a diplomatic solution. some of his advisers like john bolton, however, argued for bombing yesterday. but that flies in the face of a broad swath of bipartisan security experts who argue that bombing iran would facility their acquisition of a nuclear weapon. >> okay, joel rubin. many thanks for coming on. >> thank you. >> office politics. savannah guthrie tells me about her latest interview with president obama and the questions she wish she had asked him. why should our wallets tell us what our favorite color is? every room deserves to look great. and every footstep
ad on mr. romney's 47% remark. let's play it. here it is. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, and to food, to housing, to you name it. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them. >> that is one tough ad. you're putting faces to those words. amie has the romney camp come up with any effective counter to it or is this going to be a theme for the next 38 days? >> i think it will be a theme for the next 38 days. they are trying to respond to it. you saw this week, he touted his health care law in massachusetts, which was a little awkward for him. but he's kind of showing that he does have an empathetic side. but meanwhile the obama campaign is also coming back. they're releasing new web ad this morning. they're slamming him for bain again for his private equity experi
. in that ad we just saw, you heard mr. romney say that president obama cares for the middle class and poor people as i do. of course he does. and of course mitt romney does. anyone that thinks otherwise would be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be talking about ideas. allow the super pacs to be do that, these outside groups tending hundreds of millions of dollars on television ads, let them be the ones who go out and attack barack obama, not mitt romney. so in many ways i think there's a level of frustration with the romney campaign from conservatives that
for mr. romney and being you look at a state like wisconsin which was thought with the nomination of paul ryan might be in play, he is trailing badly out there. now even the senate race, which was thought likely to go to the republic tommy thompson, even that's upside down for the republicans out there and current polling. all of this can change. we have got some distance to go here. it isn't looking gadd for mr. romney in the polling at the moment. >> bill: why do you think that changed since the conventions? what drove the change? >> well, i wish i knew. i'm at a little bit of a locals to understand how this detype gravity: certainly lead defeat incumbent. he seems to be doing just final. part of it was the convention bounce. part of that has faded. part is romney is clumsy and not natural politician. politics is not for amateurs. people complain bitterly about the politicians. some are complaining about romney not being a good campaigner. he may be a fine man and good president he is not a politician. >> if is he a good debater he might be able to overcome that. >> he wasn't a very go
% mark at 52%. mr. romney is close but still in negative territory at 49%. he enjoys an edge on handling the deficit and joblessness, but trails on virtually every other big issue, including medicare, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's running mate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll go through
that would help mitt romney. >> you would think it is. it probably does to an extent. one of the problems mr. romney has is that voters just don't like him very much. we asked voters if they have a favorable, unfavorable of the president. they have a net unfavorable of the president and unfavorable for mitt romney. >> pollsters have been under fire from the right. >> you know it's a piece of garbage. i believe it's head to head in new hampshire. i've seen enough other polls to tell you that is a piece of garbage. >> calling it garbage. governor sununu wasn't talking about one of your polls, but one in new hampshire. how do you fight against kill the messenger? is this different than the past? >> it's not all that different. quinnipiac and most major polls do not weight their polls for party i.d. if someone passes our voter screen, they pass our likely voter. we ask if they are a democrat, republican or independent. voter identification and party identification is a changing characteristic. in 2010, democrats were complaining about the polls because party i.d. figures were republican. in ohio

with the campaign. you have to explain this to me, this is time mr. romney should be talking about middle income tax cuts. he's got a great reform plan, and he's got to help average americans losing money on a daily basis. what's going on here? why is he dialing back his tax cut plan? >> oh, well, larry, certainly not doing that, and it's really very consistent with what he's been saying on the stump ever since he announced this great plan and he's emphasized this is a tremendous pro-growth, pro-jobs tax plan, marginal tax cuts, and it's going to produce 7 million jobs over the next seven years. contrast that with the president's plan which we know is to raise taxes. >> i've known you a long time. what did he say? he didn't say what you just said. i know you're a supply sider. i go et that. he said today, don't expect big tax cuts, then went off talking about eliminating tax deductions. and you take a look, dropping the tax rate by 20% across the board for middle-income people, you can have -- you can have tax run 3,000 all the way up to 12,000. those are tremendous tax savings. that's what mitt rom
the one of him and mitt romney? alarming orange jacket there from mr. romney? >> i think they are trying to sort of like -- sort of like the normal guys next door. >> what about the first ladies? very different styles. quite fashionable to me. >> michelle is definitely fashionable. as a matter of fact, i would like her to wear my clothes. and i think mrs. romney looks very conservative, and i think maybe they want to portray her as being very conservative. >> and, finally, you have a cause very dear to your heart. about autism. a powerful clip. >> in a small town of elmira, new york, a boy was born into an all-american family. the odds of him achieving his dream in the fashion industry? 1 in 23 million. the odds of having a child diagnosed with autism? 1 in 88. i am tommy hilfiger, and my family is affected by autism. learn more at autismspeaks.org/signs. >> why is this such a cause for you? >> my family has been affected by autism. i learned 1 in 88 children are being diagnosed and there is no cure. there is no real government funding. there is no reason for the cause of it. and we are
matthews in washington. let me start with mr. romney's divorce. why did he pick paul ryan for his running mate? certainly not for better or worse. mitt spends his days and nights acting as if he's out there all alone, that he never hooked up with ryan if the first place. i get it. romney doesn't want to get dragged down by his political mate's push for getting rid of medicare. he acts like ryan has no hold on him, but it's not the way it works. romney has slowly gotten the word that the voter out there thought the two had things worked out, that romney and ryan were in this thing together. well, they're not. romney is dying. he can't stand being tied to ryan, and all that budget cutting baggage of his. for his part, ryan is feeling the taint of having a running mate who is unwilling to stand with him, unwilling to be his kind of politician. a conviction politician. so trouble in paradise. mitt's dying to be single again, so is ryan. we all know that politics makes strange bedfellows but the word is out this pair, romney and ryan, are sleeping in separate rooms. i'm joined by msnbc politic
, there's the takers and the makers out there, including among the takers, unfortunately for mr. romney, are those people who served us in uniform, may have been dismembered in some cases, spent the rest of their lives dealing with the injuries and wounds they suffered for the country, and they don't consider themselves takers exactly. let's listen to jim webb defend them. >> governor romney and i are right about the same age, young guys. like millions in the our generation, we came to adulthood facing the harsh realities of the vietnam war. 2.7 million in our age group went to vietnam. those young marines that i led so many years ago have grown older now. they've lived lives of courage, both in combat and after their return where many of them were derided by their own peers for having served. that was a long time ago. they are not bitter. they know what they did, but in receiving veteran's benefits, they are not takers. they are givers in the ultimate sense of the word. >> joy, the whole thing, people should look it up on youtube, it's the most powerful speech. i watched it today. it's

in recent weeks mr. romney has been able to get on offense. he was criticized for his early statements suggesting that the cairo embassy remarks attacks on benghazi were inappropriate. when you look at the subsequent list of alleged gaffs, misstatements and inappropriate rhetoric the president has been accused of even suggesting egypt isn't an ally made it possible for mr. romney to take more offensive approach on foreign policy and go up against the president to suggest he has not been a strong leader. bill: carl we'll be back to you in a moment. as soon as we see governor romney we'll bring our viewers to that event. meanwhile another one in new york and martha has that. martha: big day here. after governor romney, the president will address world leaders at the united nations general assembly this morning. that is expected to get underway 10:00 eastern time. we're getting an advanced look at some of what the president is expected to say this morning. chief white house correspondent ed henry is in the new york newsroom. ed, how is the president expected to address in his comments tod
